Along with the London air pollution and smog in the past were trams and elephants. I hasten to add, neither caused the air pollution. Well, only a little bit. Trams used electricity made then by burning coal and elephants with a diet of lots of green things, probably fart methane rather a lot. One can only guess about this staged photo.
Won't the mean tram conductor allow the elephant to board the tram? Where is Wandsworth anyway? Clearly not in Westminster, or I would know it. Oh, south of the Thames. Not really a desirable place for an elephant to visit. Well not for one who lives north of the Thames and wants to maintain its social status. Any clever captions to add?
Proper post tomorrow, one that has taken some time, but really this one has too. It was pretty well a one liner post that came about because I saw this photo in the public domain and I liked it. I think I made it a bit interesting with some words. I've only been blogging for fourteen years. Who knows how this blogging thingie works.
